with roughly speaking a 1.5 to 2% gdp growth rate which is terrible. >> indeed in that terrible environment i was wondering, dan, at what point does the stock market no longer rally? at what point does it start impacting earnings of american companies to the point where it is hard to extract growth there and therefore hard to get stock market gains? >> it's important to remember that companies, this is the most important factor here. the u.s. economy hasn't been performing very well but u.s. companies have done exceptionally well in terms of managing not just the downturn but the slow expansion. balance sheets are particularly strong, especially in the technology sector where there's low levels of debt and high levels of cash. companies have not been quick to add employees back when demand levels haven't necessarily justified it. so what the stock market's done has driven higher not necessarily on top line growth but on bottom line growth. listen that, doesn't continue in perpetuity but we've seen it for a couple of years now. to the extent that we think you can go a little hire here in the n

mass-oriented environments where it's pegboard and they point you to aisle four, go find it yourself. we've done research that shows in certain categories, especially foundation, the consumer shop en masse, she spends more than when she buys in prestige where she buys in the store to the exact match foundation. the value proposition is around service which is why in this market, in north america, very high percentage of the total beauty business that's done in prestige like macy's because of that service proposition and a relatively low, absolute value differential in the price point. >> we continue to see companies go in and have difficulty in china. one company told us last week that western companies are going into china with western views about the chinese consumer and their loyalty and they're finding that that consumer passes them by in different ways. are there lessons you've already figured out on that front? >> we've been doing business in asia for 30, 40 years. and we first started in japan in the early '70s, then expanded into korea and hong kong. we've been in china doing

evaluate the eating environments on our bases. we developed the go-for-green program in the dining facilities. instead of individual labeling of food, we started to color code those foods. green, eat frequently, yellow would be less frequently, and red you try to stay away from. the army's developed an initiative called "the soldier fueling initiative," and those who need more calories and nutrition, rather than eating bad calories, bepromote the healthy options out there. the fueling fitness program, which provides tailored fitness and nutrition programs for their subs, their ships, and, of course, ashore. we are working with exchanges in the fast food operations on the installations to bring in more healthy options. new food just opened up at aberdeen proving ground. there's an aggressive campaign to go out and push some of the standards that we are looking at. we've always been a leader in health and wellness and fitness, but we realize we cannot do this alone. 75 #% of the service member and families live off installations. our focus is to work together with the community partn

as there were previously and so when you get into that environment it's a lot easier for campaigns to individualize where they can get benefits by focusing on turnout or registration of their supporters as opposed to merely trying to persuade. this year 6% from a percent or 9% that are persuadable obviously those campaigns are going to focus on them but we have a far better science now and the understanding what motivates people to vote and a lot of that informed by behavioral psychology research and so the science of mobilization and turnout has got much better. the science persuasion still, it's still pretty vague and so i do think that there has been a sort of reinvesting in a lot of localization techniques in part because we have learned in the last decade how they work so now you have these two separate things. you know once you get to somebody what you can and do to increase the likelihood of voting by 2% and now we have better targeting technics through data to figure out who you talk to them about what. i don't think of it is necessarily message or targeting that good campa

you get into that environment is a lot easier for them to visualize where they can get benefits by focusing on the voter registration as opposed to trying to persuade this small slice. i don't know if it is six per cent or 9% of our purse wadable but you're going to focus on them but we have a far better science now in understanding and a lot of is informed by the psychology research and so the science of the mobilization turnout has gotten much better it's still pretty vague and it's reinvesting in a lot of mobilization techniques because we have learned in the last decade how they work as we have two separate things you sort of know once you get somebody to implicate voting by the two per cent and now we have better targeting techniques to figure out who you talk to and about what what message or targeting but the big campaigns do targeting and analysis on the front end of the allows them to understand far more precise clean way for their turn of targets and they don't need to talk to until who the persuasion targets are and if you are narrowing your universe the people you're

and continues to be a very challenging environment. speak of the reason there is no defeat of al qaeda and in afghanistan is because the administration even the last two years of the previous administration not interested in working with civil society to work with the younger generati generation, and unfortunately we are going to withdraw and the taliban will come back and sees as much as they can. ashley: the arab spring, what challenges does it pose with regards to security in the region? >> lebanon is clearly a lost cause, and the israelis are watching. iraq is going the wrong direction, the president has no solution to what is going on with iran contaminating the entire region. we have a policy that is absolutely bankrupt, it is going to lead to far broader problems across that part of the world and also the underbelly of europe. he think we have had it bad, this rate it will get much worse. ashley: all right, thank you so much. they will have much more on the administration's response to libya and afghanistan later coming up with the "a-team." no more bailouts, national debt is ov

comings of the contemporary media environment is while debates are supposed to be occasions where candidates thrash out matters of consequence thoughtfully and in detail the outcomes are often judged by snippets that are more about personal character than issues or problems. and i'm curious to know is it just that we talk about the moments, write about the moments, rerun the moments, but that people 40 are actually watching the debate trying to figure out who to vote for the moments don't resonate with them? >> i actually don't agree with that. i do think there are -- look, there are times where we genuflect over something that happens in a debate or on the campaign trail that might not matter a lot. but look, like for example in the primary you won't be surprised to hear me say this, i thought the $10,000 bet moment spoke to who mitt romney is. it spoke to what his, you know, what his life is like. it spoke to, you know, a lot of things about mitt romney. how out of touch he is. so i think -- and people really focused on that for a week after that debate. so i think there are mom

in that environment? is it too unstable of an environment for effective security exercise to continue? your thoughts on that. >> i appreciate that question. in 2001, i voted to authorize use of mill tear force in afghanistan. in the days and months following the nen attacks on the united states. it was a very clear and focused megs to go after those who planned and executed that attack. and i believe our brave men and women who went to afghanistan, very capably fulfilled that mission, frankly in fairly short order. i was in afghanistan in august of 2010, in kabul and at bagram air force base. i met with wisconsin soldiers and -- soldiers and folks in the military from the senior ranks to the tissue to those coming back from forward operating bases. you would be so proud of those men and women, but the mission today this nation building mission, is not the one that was authorized. it is now time for them to come home. >> governor thompson? >> my opponent just, i think, misstated. she said she voted for the sanctions against iran. she voted against the sanctions in 2006, 2009, and 2010 and in august s
